Flip Video

A consumer camcorder and video sharing service from Cisco. Introduced in 2007 by Pure Digital Technologies and acquired by Cisco in 2009, the product was discontinued in 2011. Software for organizing, editing and sharing came pre-stored in the unit for installation on the computer, and both software and videos were uploaded via USB.

FlipShare TV
FlipShare TV was a wireless media hub for streaming videos from the user's computer to a TV set. It used its own transmission system to the hub via a USB-based dongle in the computer.
